Little Extras

If you’d like, we also have some little extras available for your convenience:

 

Wood & Charcoal: We have an honesty box of wood and charcoal conveniently placed by your safari lodge for you to purchase if needed. The tripod BBQ uses charcoal not firewood, so if you’d like to burn wood outside we have a fire basket available to hire including a bag of appropriate logs.

 

Homemade Meals: Are also available to reheat on the stove. Warming tasty dishes including beef stew and vibrant Thai curry are freshly prepared and ready for you to heat up for a quick and easy feast. The tasty meal also comes with a homemade loaf of bread to mop up the yummy sauce! Vegetarian options are also available.

 

Food Goodies: We have a number of goodies you can choose from when booking with Re:treat ranging from BBQ packs and breakfast packs (including vegetarian options). The meat in our packs is sourced from Woburn Country Foods including award-winning bacon and sausages.
